PM praises plan to hold competitions for state attorneys’ posts
The prime minister has praised the new justice minister’s plan to hold competitions for state attorneys’ posts. Regarding Justice Minister Blažek’s reluctance to appoint popular prosecutor Lenka Bradáčová to the post of Prague High State Attorney, Prime Minister Nečas said Wednesday that the competition will be good for the Czech judiciary. There has been abundant speculation in the last month that the former justice minister was fired because he planned to appoint Bradáčová, who is considered a strong anti-corruption prosecutor. The prime minister also praised Blažek for withstanding media pressure to follow through with the appointment.
